Rahul Dravid's tenure as India head coach ended on a high as the Rohit Sharma-led team lifted the T20 World Cup 2024. Dravid took over as India coach following Ravi Shastri's resignation in 2021 and with Rohit Sharma at helm, led India to the semifinal of the T20 World Cup 2022, the final of the World Test Championship and ODI World Cup before leading the team to a title win in T20 World Cup 2024.
Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma's wife Ritika Sajdeh posted an emotional note for Rahul Dravid following his exit as India head coach. Ritika shared a snap of Rohit Sharma's post for Rahul Dravid and wrote, " So many emotions, you mean so much to our entire family. You will be missed so so much. I think Sammy will miss you the most," wrote Ritika.
Earlier, the Indian captain also paid a fitting tribute to the outgoing coach. Rohit in a warm post highlighted how Dravid created a healthy atmosphere in the dressing room, adding that he will be dearly missed. Rohit also congratulated Dravid on the T20 World Cup win.
"Dear Rahul bhai, I have been trying to find the right words to properly express my feelings on this but I'm not sure I ever will so here's my attempt," wrote Rohit in a post on Instagram.
"Since my childhood days I have looked up to you just like billions of others but I was lucky enough to get to work with you this closely. You are an absolute stalwart of this game but you left all of your accolades and achievements at the door and walked in as our coach and came on a level where we all felt comfortable enough to say just about anything to you. That is your gift, your humility and your love for this game even after all this time. I have learnt so much from you and every memory will be cherished. My wife refers to you as my work wife and I'm lucky to get to call you that too," the India captain wrote.
"This was the only thing missing from your arsenal and I'm so happy that we got to achieve it together. Rahul bhai it has been an absolute privilege to get to call you my confidant, my coach and my friend," he added.
Meanwhile, following Dravid's exit, BCCI appointed Gautam Gambhir as India head coach. Gambhir, who led KKR to a win in IPL 2024, will take over the duties from the India tour of Sri Lanka in July. VVS Laxman is serving as an interim coach on the current tour to Zimbabwe.
